Atletico Madrid are reportedly trailing Lille attacker Gervinho, who has been linked with a number of major European clubs.
The 23-year-old Ivory Coast international has been in fine form for Lille this season with Liverpool, Manchester City and Aston Villa thought to be monitoring his situation.
Spanish outfit Atletico see Gervinho as a replacement for experienced winger Simao and are rumoured to be considering a bid of €12million.
However, Lille are currently top of Ligue 1 and Gervinho claims he is happy at the club.
"I am really looking forward to the end of the season," he told skysports.com.
"Lille has a chance to win the title. To be honest I want to play in the Champions League.
"The Champions League is a dream tournament for me after the World Cup where I played okay."
